Pimm’s summer pudding slice
All the sunshine tastes of the Great British summer in one pud! For a family-friendly version, leave out the Pimm’s and use 500ml lemonade.

This French dish is traditionally made with black cherries – plums add a British orchard twist. A clafoutis rises as it bakes then sinks back as it cools. Don’t worry – this won’t affect the taste or texture.
Blueberry Surprise gâteau
Already spectacular, this blueberry surprise dessert has even more of a wow-factor when you cut into it! Make sure your eggs and butter are at room temperature to achieve a light and fluffy sponge.
